Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki's film Ponyo (On A Cliff by the Sea) has found an American release date (via Disney, as per usual) and a very strange cast for its English dubbing. Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin, Cloris Leachman, and Betty White will lend their vocal talents to what early estimates are claiming will be Miyazaki's biggest hit stateside. From the Japanese trailer, i'm not so sure about this one. Looks a little too kid friendly. Ponyo is apparently a baby fish who wishes to be human, which is cool, but ...
Never mind. We'll see.
